If 2020 was the year of quarantines and comfort food, 2021 brings a chance to ditch the donuts and refocus on our health. While a well-balanced diet brings a variety of expected benefits from increased energy levels to less bloat, you might see one notable change every time you look in the mirror. We’ve written before about how a healthy diet can brighten your skin from the inside, but given what 2020 threw our way, this advice certainly bears repeating.
"Everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. The healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look," says Samantha Heller , MS, RD, a clinical nutritionist at NYU Medical Center in New York City. The same rings true in reverse – neglecting to consume a healthy skin diet may result in notable skin concerns like acne, eczema, psoriasis and more.
Thankfully, getting better skin is as easy as “A, B, C.”
Antioxidants: Foods and spices rich in antioxidants, like artichokes, avocados, and turmeric (extracts of which can be found in the SeeMe Complex™ in all SeeMe products) have been shown to help revive dry skin, reverse skin damage caused by free radicals, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
B-3: Also known as niacinamide, an important ingredient in the SeeMe Complex™, B-3 helps to improve your skin’s overall texture and tone, minimizing pores and age spots. Boost your vitamin B-3 by consuming more salmon, chicken breast, and brown rice.
Chug, chug, chug! No, we’re not talking about reliving your glory days. In this case, the drink in question is good old-fashioned H20. Proper hydration affects your skin cells, which in turn can combat a dull complexion.
There’s no surefire way to guarantee a clearer complexion, but thanks to a healthy diet and a little determination, clearer skin could also be a regular staple on the daily menu.
